Yay tall boy can, but not date on an IPA.
Pours a small head, nice that it didn't foam too much out of the can as many canned ipas do, but what a poor head for a canned ipa, light bubbly head with touch of lacing, hazy bright carrot orange color.
Nose has mild hops, a little spicy chewy hop, very herbal and medicinal plastic like vegetal hop, maybe a state hop?, a weird broccoli like vegetal aroma, not so nice, I really don't like smelling this. Mild grassy hop, as well as a light grainy malt. A mild juicy fruit component too which seems like what they were initially going for but Ug.
Taste starts with spicy hops, little chewy like, quite bitter, mild citrus and hint of fruit. Then some sweet malt, little candy and caramel malt, malts attempt to balance the big hop bitterness but falls short a little as the hops get borderline astringent. Hops turn a little herbal and vegetal like oily almost rancid oil. Fairly juicy and bitter, much better taste than the aroma. Finish is drier and astringent, little spicy hop and briny, light caramel malt residue too.
Mouth is med bod, little sticky, lower carb.
Well, this falls quite short. Missed a lot of what it tried to do, and some off flavors and poor aroma, mostly seems like poor hops, but also severely lacking carbonation and head. Not a good beer at all.

Thanks to Pawola22 for sending me this can.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has quite a bit of biscuit malt and the resulting sweetness, as well as some pine and a little bit of orange citrus. The flavor has a lot of toffee and caramel malt in it, with some pine and a hint of grass from the hops. Low to medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(Served in a Nonic)
A- This beer has a spongy antique white head on a slightly hazy orange body. There is a strong carbonation of big bubbles popping off the bottom of the glass.
S- The soft mellow green citrus hops are all that come out of the clean aroma and they turn more orange as it opens but remain very soft.
T- The caramel malt note turns more biscuit as it opens with some mellow green hops turning pungent after the dry finish.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz and no alcohol heat.
O- This is a nice mellow British ale that shows a good malt character but the hop pungency is bitter and really covers and dominates the whole flavor. It is a bit hard to drink because of the bitterness.
